Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool Predictions


Liverpool have been full of goals recently but will find Atletico Madrid a tough nut to break down. The Spanish side has only lost one in eight matches to the Reds. My best bet is for this to end in a draw.

Head to Head


Atletico Madrid lead Liverpool 5-1 in their eight previous matches. There have been two draws.

These sides met in the 2019-20 Champions League where Atletico Madrid won 3-2 at Anfield after extra time at the quarter-final stage. 

Atletico Madrid Form


Atletico Madrid have started the La Liga season with five victories from their opening eight matches. They are well positioned in the Champions League as well with a draw and a win from their two matches.

After a 0-0 draw at home to Porto in their opening Champions League match, Atletico had another goalless draw at home to Athletic Bilboa. That was followed by a 2-1 La Liga win at Getafe before their first defeat (1-0) came at Alaves.

Since then however Diego Simeone’s charges have beaten AC Milan 2-1 away in Europe and won 2-0 at home against Barcelona. Tomas Lemar and Luis Suarez scored first half goals to secure that victory.

Atletico have not played since then. Their match against Granada this past weekend was postponed so they’ve had a good recovery period.

Atletico Madrid Injuries & Team News


Attacker Matheus Cunha remains out injured, as does centre-back Jose Gimenez. Stefan Savic will also be missing from the centre of defence after his red card last time out.

Diego Simeone will be hoping that Marcos Llorente is fit enough to start considering the injuries at the back. He is certainly in the running to start.

Liverpool Form


Liverpool have won both of their opening Champions League matches this season and top the group. Domestically they aren’t doing much worse, currently placed second behind Chelsea.

The Reds have been scoring plenty of goals recently, 15 in their last four matches to be precise. Since the 3-3 draw at Brentford, they have beaten Porto 5-1 away and drawn 2-2 at home to Manchester City.

Over the weekend Jurgen Klopp’s side thrashed Premier League strugglers, Watford 5-0 away. Roberto Firmino scored a hat trick while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah added one each.

Liverpool Injuries & Team News


Goalkeeper Alisson and midfielder Fabinho both missed the weekend match due to their late return from international duty. They should both be fine to start this match.

Central midfielders Thiago and Harvey Elliott are confirmed absentees through injury while Curtin Jones is unlikely to feature. If he does it will be off the bench.

Verdict
